The Pacific Challenge presents crews with the platform to raise awareness and funds for charity.
Team Antigua Island Girls will raise funds to aid a project in Antigua and Barbuda to assist girls in conflict with the law. The objectives of the initiative are to provide shelter (women and girls are routinely placed on remand for lack of a facility and services) and counseling for this underserved population.
Project partner is the Family and Social Services Division in the Ministry of Social Transformation. The Division has identified land upon which the team, using funds already raised, will construct the shelter. Additional funds raised will go towards providing services needed by clients of the shelter.
